GPs to monitor mental health of all patients who own guns


Our entire practice has just opted out. You have to conscientiously object. It only costs us a stamp or a fax every time we get one now. Fundamentally its an unsafe system, but personally I'm especially dismayed that the BMA would a) underestimate the work that is involved or the importance of it. they actually say its okay to sign the form if you have no knowledge of the patient, and b) expect me to do the work for nothing because it wont take very long. Is this the same BMA that still charges its members for whatever it is that it does? What on earth has gone wrong with our profession?
